PDF Sewing Pattern - Side Handle Gusset Tote

6.00

Finished Measurements

13" [33 cm] wide x 10" [25.4 cm] tall x 5" [12.7 cm] deep

Clean lines and minimalist hand-stitched details make this the perfect tote to carry around your latest sweater project, or for a quick trip to the farmers market. The deep gusset makes it super roomy and the side mounted handles cleverly close up the top while you are toting it around. There is an added side pocket to stash your essentials. My love of hand silk-screened fabrics and simple running stitches are shown off against the natural linen or canvas background. Dig through your stash and have some fun!

See below for supplies needed.

Note: This pattern was originally published in Making Magazine vol. 6: Black & White as the Japanese Style Linen Tote - but it doesn’t need to be made with linen. In fact, I have been having fun making it with canvas duck, denim, and even waxed canvas. This also allows you to skip the interfacing (a bonus in my book!)

Supplies

Recommended fabrics:

Exterior: medium or heavy weight linen, cotton twill, denim, or canvas duck. (you can also use quilt weight cotton or linen, but you will need to interface it for sturdiness)

Lining: medium or lightweight linen or quilting cotton.
